Has anyone notice the burning garbage smell the last three nights, including tonight, north of Sunset Beach? It seems to last all night and seems to include or consist entirely of burning plastics/petrochemicals.

There has been a fire at the landfill; it is under control, but the winds bring the smell from the fire to the west side. I smell it too.

The smell is back with a vengeance this evening. Landfill burns can be very difficult to extinguish. I hope they have a solid plan in action as this is a very annoying and unhealthy circumstance for anyone breathing it in.

What is causing the 'fires'?
